“A Holy Place”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

To go to St Non's Well and Chapel is to go back in time and imagine the birth of St David all those years ago. I had no transport but it was not a long walk to St Non's Bay and well worth the effort.

“Great walk to the coast, lovely little "shrine"”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We walked from the cathedral car park -steep uphill to start with, then fairly level path. This is where St David was supposed to be born. The well is supposed to heal, but I couldn't verify this as I am healthy! Lovely walk back across the fields into St Davids

“Small and quaint -worth a visit”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

WE walked to this small chapel from the info centre in St Davids - where the helpful staff both explained the walk to us and sold us a map for 50p .. well worth having ! we did the whole 4.0 miles Coastal path Walk ..but you can cut it short and make it about 2.0 and head back to St Davids after visiting St Non's Chapel.

The Chapel , built in the 1930's is small but well preseverd and a really nice feel to it.

Nicer if you are in it on your own and can refelect a bit ... and it can get quite busy. Great views of the bay from the Chapel and there are plenty of benches to sit on outside and reflect.
A peaceful place

The coastal path walk to the Chapel is well worth the effort and some stunning views. the whole 4 miler is worth doing , but after St Non's it does get a bit more rugged and exposed .. so it might depend on how fit you are / and wether you have the right shoes on .

A bit of history not to be missed.

“Lovely setting”
Reviewed 18 September 2013 via mobile

Just a short walk from St. David's town, this chapel participates in the history and lore of the area and is at the end or the beginning of a walk along the Pembrokeshire coastline so look for it on the map and visit it in passing.
